Chavez versus Spain
Please know that the situation in Venezuela is just Chavez reacting against Spain for the disciplinary action that beloved King Juan Carlos gave him. And, Venezuelans are delighted to have someone of this category ask the infamous leader to shut up:
Please click on the editorial cartoon dated November 15, 2007:
"(The comments) of the Venezuelan president, especially referring to Spanish companies, do not help us find a way out of the disagreement," Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos said. "The Spanish government keeps stressing respect, respect. Respect for Spanish institutions, respect for Spanish firms."
Sadly, Chavez seems not to know any better, and would be unable to meet the requests to show respect. Please read my previous blog post with comments from Ambassador Adolfo Taylhardat and Journalist Eleonora Bruzual to understand Chavez's lack of training in diplomacy and how to behave as the leader of a nation. Perhaps, Chavez's foreign minister (former Metro bus driver) may have the training needed.
